Integration of gender equality and equal opportunities
Uppsala University is an administrative authority governed by laws, regulations, and the decisions made by the government and the Riksdag. Since 2016, all state higher education institutions, as well as the Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Jönköping, have been tasked with strengthening work on gender mainstreaming to contribute to achieving the government's gender equality policy goals.
On June 16, 2020, the Vice-Chancellor approved a new plan for the continued work on gender mainstreaming, which is valid for three years: 2020-2022. The plan sets out the overall direction for the work and is based on a problem inventory and follow-up of the work with gender mainstreaming during 2017-2019.
